The death toll in Friday night's fatal Canadian bus crash has risen to 15.

While the cause of the crash has yet to be determined, both RCMP and Humboldt mayor Rob Muench referenced typical winter driving conditionsfor this time of year, during a Saturday afternoon press conference.

The crash occurred at around 5 p.m. on Highway 35, approximately 30 kilometres north of Tisdale near the junction of Highway 335. Winds were relatively calm at about 15 km/h with clear skies.

The bus was carrying the Humboldt Broncos of the Saskatchewan junior hockey league to the town of Nipawin for a playoff game. The Royal Canadian Multiple Police said there were 28 people on the bus at the time of the crash, including the driver.

"Brody had recently joined our Golden West family, mentored by Tyler and the Bolt FM team", Lyndon Frieson, president of Golden West Radio, said in a statement posted on the station's website.

"It's a terrible accident, my God", said Darren Opp, the president of the Nipawin Hawks hockey team.

The Winnipeg native said that accident still resonates in the community.

Also reported dead by CBC were team captain Logan Schatz and 16-year-old Adam Herold, who was one of the youngest players on the team. "We will never forgot the members of our Broncos family who were taken from us and who were injured".

Stebeck said that the doors are open to anyone who is struggling to come to terms with the tragedy.

A vigil is scheduled for tonight at the Broncos' home arena, where the community will gather to grieve, remember those they've lost and offer support for the loved ones they left behind. "It has been a tragedy nobody would have imagined". "I've got four other kids and they're here, which is nice".

Haugan was one of many former hockey players that Chilman kept in touch with after hosting.

"I can not imagine what these parents are going through, and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this awful tragedy, in the Humboldt community and beyond", Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote in a tweet.

President Donald Trump said Saturday he spoke with Trudeau to "pay my highest respect and condolences to the families of the bad Humboldt Team tragedy". "May God be with them all!"

Images from the accident site suggested the force of the crash had torn the bus in two, leaving debris scattered in the snow-covered fields that line the highway. "There's not a lot we can do".

The death of Saskatoon-born Evan Thomas, who played right wing for the Broncos, was confirmed by the Saskatoon Blazers, a team Thomas previously played with.

Thankfully it seems Canadians are responding with their pocketbooks as the GoFundMe set up by Sylvie Kellington has now reached over $3 million and is well on it's way to reaching its goal of $4 million.

"I'm just really trying to get a grasp on what's happened, and slowly come to grips and to terms with it", said Peter Soberlak, "and I think that's what most people in Saskatchewan will be doing today, is just really trying to absorb what this means and the impact it's going to have for a long time".
